Finding font used in a psd file
Posted on 2004-08-12
My friend passed me a psd file which gives me an font not found error when I edit on my side. The font he used is a non English font, and he doesn't know which one it is. In photoshop it appears as "By-JOSSQ-DMF-in-Beijing", but there is no such font file in the his windows\font folder.
I have used those Unicode font viewer programs like X-fonter and FontView to see the fonts installed on his sideThe font names for other asian fonts appears as the same name in both photoshop and the viewers but not this particular font. He has a quite a lot of these Asian fonts and I want to avoid installing/removing each one to hunt for it.
So, how can I get the font file used in a psd file in such a situation. It's not the same name, unlike Arial which appears the same name in photoshop and windows\font folder.
